New Active Blacklisting: Mute Unwanted Sources Directly From Your Dashboard

Good news for Premium users: we just updated our Active Blacklisting feature to make it even easier to use. Here’s a quick look at what’s new…

What is Active Blacklisting? Active Blacklisting allows you to refine your sources by filtering out data from certain domains or authors.

In its previous iteration, Blacklisting was only available through the Manager (Premium for Teams) or Account Page (Premium for One), which could turn out to be time-consuming if you had a lot of sources to blacklist. So we made it better and more accessible.

From now on, you’ll be able to blacklist articles, authors (by domain) or entire domains on your Premium Dashboard by simply clicking on the blacklist icon (the barred circle under the title of the article) in any item from any SmartFilters result.

After blacklisting, articles from this author or domain will no longer be displayed in SmartFilters, and will no more be analyzed in the Social Pack widgets. An easy way to get rid of the noise! Better sources, better results.

Try it now by logging into your Premium dashboard. And as usual, let us know what you think in the comments section or on our UserVoice page.
